More than a travelogue, Born to Explore represents a window into the world. Hosted by modern-day Indiana Jones, Richard Wiese, the series travels to far-flung corners of the globe to celebrate world cultures, encounter rare and endangered wildlife, and discover exhilarating wonders. Aggressor Adventures and the travel series began exploring together in 2018.
“Aggressor Adventures is the perfect exploration partner. Wayne Brown’s adventurous spirit and the first-class brand are critical to the show’s ability to explore new locales, cultures, nature and history of the places I visit on the show,” explains Wiese.
“My team and I are so grateful to have Aggressor Adventures as a partner and are thrilled for the brand’s special recognition from Telly with these awards.”
Season three of Born to Explore with Richard Wiese premiered 4 April on PBS stations. For more information, visit: borntoexplore.net.
